The Only Job Description You’ll Ever Need

by Gary Ryan Blair

It’s about time someone said it…

Most job descriptions are…

a joke…

a tool for CYA…(covering your a@#)

a useless and outdated resource for what it takes to compete and win in today’s environment.

Now that it’s easier than ever to outsource a job to someone cheaper (or a robot) there needs to be a really good reason for someone to hire you.

Regardless of your talents, experience, and responsibilities…this is why you’re on the payroll, and what you’re REALLY hired to do…

Love your customers…treat them with dignity and respect

Care more

Surprise and delight

Go the extra mile

Exceed all expectations

Focus on solutions

Elevate the quality of every conversation

Add positive energy to every interaction

Smile when you talk

Challenge assumptions

Inspire excellence

Raise standards

Contribute ideas

Deliver results

Meet deadlines

Be accountable

Take intelligent risks

Write and speak clearly, confidently and convincingly

Ask challenging questions

Set a good example

Cut costs and remove waste

Leave a mark, not a stain

Be trustworthy


Goal Achievement Strategies

Bonus: Here’s a Great Way to Achieve Goals Fast!

Listen for understanding

Act like the owner

Solve problems

Take the lead on projects

Accelerate outcomes while maintaining quality

Acknowledge good work from your peers

Persevere in spite of obstacles

Fight for principle

Showcase your art

Demonstrate best practices

Become brilliant on the basics

Act with urgency

Initiate creative ideas

Invent a new product or service that people want

Surface and highlight difficult decisions

Figure out what didn’t work and why

Offer to help co-workers before they ask

Be curious

Help invent a new product or service that people really want

Get smarter at your job through ongoing learning

Keep promises and honor commitments

Make good decisions

Confront the status quo

Take pride in your performance

Be joyful and help create a joyful environment

If you’re looking to land a job, keep a job or earn a promotion…you’ll need to master these soft skills.

Learning and honing the soft skills is not optional, as these intangible qualities are increasingly in demand…because they help to drive tangible results.

In today’s world, simply showing up, going through the motions, and only doing what’s on your written job description is not sufficient and completely unacceptable.

One last thing which needs to be included on your job description has to do with your philosophy….

You must believe in sweating the small stuff, because in the end…every customer counts, every sale counts, every glowing review counts…

Everything Counts!
